Farn­bor­ough butch­ers is given zero hy­giene rat­ing


Star Courier (Surrey & Hants) - - FRONT PAGE -

J & J Ha­lal Butch­ers Ltd, in Bridge Road, was in­spected by Rush­moor Bor­ough Coun­cil in­spec­tors on Jan­uary 12. The Food Stan­dards Agency ( FSA) col­lects data in part­ner­ship with lo­cal au­thor­i­ties on restau­rants, take­aways, cafes, sand­wich shops, pubs, ho­tels, su­per­mar­kets and other out­lets sell­ing food.

Premises are given a hy­giene rat­ing from zero to five fol­low­ing in­spec­tions by en­vi­ron­men­tal health teams from lo­cal coun­cils.

The in­spec­tors re­ported that ur­gent im­prove­ment is nec­es­sary in the man­age­ment of food safety at J & J Ha­lal Butch­ers.

The busi­ness must en­sure that a sys­tem or checks are in place to en­sure food sold or served is safe to eat, ev­i­dence that staff know about food safety, and the food safety of­fi­cer has con­fi­dence that stan­dards will be main­tained in fu­ture.

Im­prove­ment is also nec­es­sary in the ‘ hy­gienic han­dling of food, in­clud­ing prepa­ra­tion, cook­ing, re- heat­ing, cool­ing and stor­age’.

How­ever, the re­port re­vealed that the in­spec­tors were gen­er­ally sat­is­fied with the clean­li­ness and con­di­tion of the fa­cil­i­ties and build­ing.

The Star Courier re­quested a copy of the full re­port from Rush­moor Bor­ough Coun­cil but this was de­clined as the au­thor­ity is cur­rently work­ing with J & J Ha­lal to make the nec­es­sary im­prove­ments.

Cllr Ken Muschamp, the bor­ough coun­cil’s cab­i­net mem­ber for busi­ness, safety and reg­u­la­tion, said: “Our en­vi­ron­men­tal health of­fi­cers vis­ited this butcher’s shop in Septem­ber 2016 and rated the busi­ness in ac­cor­dance with the Food Hy­giene Rat­ing Scheme as a 2, ‘ Im­prove­ment Nec­es­sary’.

“A fur­ther re­visit to check progress on Jan­uary 12 found stan­dards had not been main­tained and the busi­ness slipped to a ‘ zero’ rat­ing.

“As a re­sult of these con­tin­ued fail­ures, the of­fi­cers are now con­sid­er­ing what fur­ther for­mal ac­tion is re­quired to se­cure the nec­es­sary im­prove­ments.
